Ciao from Venezia! The great thing about being in Europe is the train system is AMAZING. I really wish it was as reasonably priced (and fast) in America too. We were able to jump on Trenitalia and got to Venice, from Milan, in two hours (THAT ISH CRAY). The down side (there always has to be a catch) to this mode of trans that we learned later on in our trip… one word – STRIKE. Yup, that’s right if the workers go on strike, NO TRAIN = you stuck son.
Any-who back to Venice. One of our goals, besides having fun and drinking Chianti, on this trip was to eat our way through the local cuisines. In Venice the dish du jour is… seafood (OBVI). We originally wanted to eat at Ristorante al Covo but alas didn’t think to make a reservation (WHY WHY WHY) and got turned away at the door (‘Embarrassing’ – Unikitty voice). Luckily we were trying to eat at 1930 (730 p.m. aka old people time in Italy) so we were able to get a table at Ristorante Carpaccio, recommended by the host at al Covo who took pity on us. I ate a caprese salad to start followed by pasta with clams (#nomnom #foodcoma) and REGRET NOTHING.
Anyone else have FAV restaurants from Venice or places they would like to go back and try?
